Dear Mr. Kleven,

On behalf of The ERISA Industry Committee (ERIC), we’d like to thank the Wisconsin Medical Examining Board (Board) for thoughtfully developing your proposed telemedicine rules. As the only national association that advocates for large employers on health, retirement and compensation public policies at the federal state and local levels, ERIC has appreciated the opportunity to share our unique perspective with you.

We are pleased to see that your final proposed rules, as drafted, do not create unnecessary barriers to this modern health care delivery tool.

For your reference, attached please find ERIC’s previous letter to the Board that summarizes our core telemedicine policy positions. We welcome additional questions and opportunities to contribute to your rulemaking process.

Sincerely,

Allison M. Wils
Executive Director, State Programs
Senior Director, Health Policy
